UEFA moves Champions League final to Porto

UEFA moves Champions League final to Porto



UEFA has moved this month’s Champions League
final between Manchester City and Chelsea from Istanbul to
Porto, according to Turkish on Tuesday.
European soccer’s governing body declined to comment on
the reports from the media outlets, which included, while Turkish Football Federation officials
were not immediately available for comment.
The UK government placed Turkey on its travel ‘red list’ on
Friday, effectively ruling out the opportunity for supporters of
the English clubs to attend the game.
Talks have taken place between UEFA and the UK
government in recent days on moving the May 29 game to
Wembley Stadium in London to allow easier access for fans of
the English clubs.
However, a source with knowledge of the discussions said
there were obstacles around the need for quarantine
exemptions for international  technical and support staff.
Porto emerged on Monday as an option to host the final.

Last week, the UK government placed Portugal on its ‘green
list’ from May 17, which means fans of the English clubs would
be free to travel to the game should it be moved.
Portugal is currently in the last phase of easing a lockdown
and expects to lift travel restrictions from May 17.
